Candles in the crypt
This picture was a bitch to get because I had no way to stabilize my camera and there was only the light of the candles and what came in through the peepholes (see next picture) to take it by. That said, I'm REALLY pleased with how it came out.

Autun Cathedral:  West central doorjam of the cathdral seen through stairway columns

The cathedral is dedicated to St. Lazarus, Mary Magdalene's brother. She and their sister Martha are shown with Lazarus on the central doorjam of the west facade. The cathedral was closed for renovations, so we did not get to go inside.
